Quality Physical Environment in Paediatric Wards: Designer’s Creation Versus Users’ Satisfaction
Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences
Prior research has revealed that an optimal healing environment can enhance a child’s quality of life by supporting the healing process. However, little has been done to identify specific design features within an optimal healing environment that either impede or aid the healing process.
Flexibility: beyond the buzzword-practical findings from a systematic literature review
Health Environments Research & Design Journal
While many healthcare facilities claim to have incorporated flexibility and adaptability into their new design, few have documented the outcomes of such claims. In reality, many healthcare facilities are outdated before they are built and fully occupied. These facilities then require extensive renovation and replacement during their life cycle to respond to changing demands of demographics, technology, and care delivery models.
Physical Environment: The Major Determinant Towards the Creation of a Healing Environment?
Procedia-Social and Behavioral Sciences
Prior research suggests that the pediatric population’s heightened perception of the quality of the physical environment can have an impact on the creation of a healing environment.
